Shakib will lead in World Cup if he returns: Nazmul Hassan Papon

Shakib Al Hasan, who was banned from all forms of cricket for a year, was kept secret after receiving a match-fixing offer from the gamblers. Shakib Al Hasan will be leading the Bangladesh team in the ICC ODI World Cup in 2023 when his ban is over.

Shakib will not play the T20 World Cup in Australia in October this year. At that time, he will be under the ICC ban. However, if Bangladesh can make it to the main stage by qualifying from the group stage in T20 World Cup, then Shakib can be played in the main stage of the tournament.

About this, the BCB president said on Wednesday, “At which time Shakib will return, this is the main concern. He could not come in the qualifying round of the T20 World Cup. It is not yet known whether Shakib will be able to come in without the match practice, even if we go to the main stage. We will have to discuss with Shakib.”
